Intermission & Claro y Obscuro

June 5, 2011 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


May 20 through August 28, 2011

Benito Huerta (b. 1952) has been creating artwork in Texas since the 1970’s. Significantly influenced by Pop Art and Conceptual Art, in addition to the Chicano movement, his paintings and prints frequently deal with the comedy, tragedy, and absurdity present in our world. Huerta’s imagery is appropriated from Western Art history, film and television, or inspired by rock and roll lyrics. INTERMISSION presents work from the last two decades of his distinguished artistic career.

Curated by Cesáreo Moreno

Claro y Obscuro

May 20 through November 27, 2011

Chicago area artist Elsa Muñoz paints still settings and meditative moments in time, suggesting something has just transpired, or that a new sequence of events is about to unfold. At times eerie, the work reflects her personal exploration and interpretation of the chiaroscuro technique-an approach where the shadow itself acts as a dominant character in the scene.
